time. they also say that that murder charge could potentially carry the death penalty. reporting live from los angeles, i'm teri okita. >> have authorities talked about security that might have been able to prevent this shooting? >> reporter: yeah. that's a good question. the l.a. airport police chief did speak a little bit about that today. he said that he does think that they had adequate manpower to handle this, that recently the officers, several hundred of them, were retrained in emergency situations just like this. that being said, he did note that there were about -- they were about 17 officers under the number that's actually allocated for the department. but he doesn't think that made a difference. as far as the tsa goes, right now, agents are not required or allowed to carry weapons. and from what the tsa administrator told us today, that does not appear to be a policy that they are about to change anytime soon. >> teri okita in los angeles, thank you. more than 1500 flights have
been affected by the shooting at l.a.x. we checked sfo's website this afternoon. and there were no significant delays as far as departures go. most of the flights coming out of los angeles are running on time but we did find some lengthy delays for virgin america which also canceled a flight this morning to san jose. southwest canceled one flight to oakland this afternoon. late last night, bart's largest union voted to accept a contract that gives them a raise and improved working conditions. the agreement comes after months of negotiations and two crippling strikes. don knapp is at the daly city bart station with details. >> reporter: you may recall during the negotiations when bart introduced the last-minute push for work rule changes, talks stopped. now we have learned that bart got those work rule changes it wanted and the unions got safety rules they wanted. reporter: bart riders were mostly just glad the strike is over and the contracts have
been ratified. but there's lingering anger over workers strike that tied up the bay area. >> it was a very difficult situation for a couple of days and a lot of people were pretty heavily inconvenienced, but collective bargaining is important. >> reporter: work and safety rules that nearly torpedoed the talks got renewed attention after two workers were killed, struck by a train on the bart tracks. the deaths may have helped end the strike. >> it's most unfortunate but, yes, there was a lot of light shed on the real safety issues that are going on with bart. >> reporter: she says 88% of seiu's 1400 members approved the contract and says work safety was a big reason. >> our people are the people that step on the tracks and they do this every day to make sure that those tracks are clear for the trains as they pass through. they are also the workers who have to deal with 1,000 volts every day. >> reporter: bart management says work rule changes played a role. >> so when management tries to manage in the old contract we were only able to do it with
the union's approval so management never was able to manage under the old contract. this was an essential provision for up to move forward and let management help shade where we immediate to go. >> reporter: the train operators union which includes station agents also ratified the contract by more than 85%. >> i think it was an overwhelming understanding of what was on the table. you know, an understanding that at this point was what was going on that a deal needed to be done. >> reporter: all workers will see a 15% pay raise over 4 years. the workers will also begin to help pay for their own pensions and healthcare up to a 4% contribution by the end of the four years. and work under new safety rules. bart's board of directors is expected to ratified the agreement or at least to vote on the agreement before the regularly scheduled meeting november 21. reporting live in daly city, don knapp, kpix 5. >> the much smaller afscme union hasn't voted yesterday every yet. one of the two men killed on the tracks belonged to that

high 60s across the santa clara valley. 67 degrees concord, clayton, walnut creek and pinole. tomorrow outside number 70 same monday. tuesday low 70s. the most mild day of the upcoming workweek will be on thursday with that chance -- actually wednesday, and the chance of rain on thursday. when you go night-night, set your clocks one hour back. yes. and always check your fire detectors. that's most important. >> thank you. a bittersweet moment today during the boston red sox world series championship parade. the team stopped at the finish line of the boston marathon and placed the trophy along with a jersey on it. boston strong became the team's motto after the april bombing that killed three people. 617 that you see on the jerseys is the boston area code. nice to see them united in celebration. >> nice to be jonny gomes at the finish line holding up the
